Strelna is a beautiful palace and park on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, 20 kilometers from the center of St. Petersburg. Peter the Great planned to build a country palace here similar to Versailles, however, due to difficulties with the construction of cascades of fountains in Strelna, the royal residence was moved to Peterhof. The palace in Strelna was completed only by the end of the 18th century, and it became the residence of the Grand Dukes.
